Ministry with Young People – Session 3
June 22 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The Faith Formation Office is partnering with Ablaze Ministries to offer a three-part virtual training program for ministry with young people.
Session 3 – Partnering with Parents
The most successful ministry leaders have figured out how to partner with parents. This is no easy task in the midst of changing family dynamics and limited resources. Participants will learn tried and true ways to reach parents in this age and how to get out of the way to allow the parent to be the primary herald of the faith.
